Noter:
• Cross By changes a R-H setup to a L-H setup & vice-versa. Think about moving up to the next dancer, to join the opposite hand. EN: 50
Cross By ændrer et Right-Hand setup til et Left-Hand setup & vice-versa. DK: 50
• Ends become Centers and Centers become Ends. EN: 60
Ends bliver Centers og Centers bliver Ends. DK: 60
• Some callers call Cross By from a 1/4 Tag and want a Cross Extend [C1]. This usage of Cross By isn't correct since 1/2 Circulate isn't defined from a 1/4 Tag. EN: 70
• According to the CALLERLAB definition: from Parallel Waves Cross By does not end in a Thar but in a "wave between vertical mini-waves." This implies that there is a definite resulting Center Wave. We have never seen any caller try to exploit this aspect. We believe Cross By from Parallel Waves always ends in a Thar. EN: 80
Ifølge CALLERLAB definitionen ender callet fra Parallelle Waves I en Center Wave med 2 vertikale Mini-Waves - og IKKE I en Thar - dette medfører at der identificeres en Center-Wave. Det er ikke set at en Caller udforsker denne problematik - men hvem ved! DK: 80
